Ofsted Report

Ofsted’s role is to regulate and inspect childcare settings.

I have been graded “Outstanding” since 2007, on my last 4 consecutive inspections.

  • 14th August 2007 – Outstanding

  • 17th June 2011 – Outstanding

  • 12th January 2016 – Outstanding

  • 23rd January 2020 – Outstanding


The following are comments made by the Ofsted Inspector, and are taken from my latest inspection report:

  • The inspirational childminder confidently implements the early years foundation stage curriculum and has extremely high expectations for all children attending.

  • She has an exemplary understanding of children's individual needs and interests.

  • She plans incredibly well to build on what children know and can already do.

  • The childminder places a very high importance on children's language and literacy skills.

  • Children thrive in her setting. They are extremely engaged and highly motivated to take part in their activities.

  • Children demonstrate positive attitudes to their learning.

  • The childminder is extremely consistent in the messages she gives to children. As a result, children have a clear understanding of her expectations.

  • Children behave impeccably. They show respect for each other and use kind words and manners. Children are very happy and have exceptionally strong bonds with the childminder and her assistant.
